I have been travelling to the Norris Farm for over 7 years.
The atmosphere on the farm is so very warm and welcoming. Mary and Bill, and very often other members of their family and friends, are the friendliest people you could ever meet. They make you feel like you belong on the farm and are part of their extended family too.
The activities that we get to see and participate in are so interesting, like stepping straight back into the past and experiencing real farming life from past centuries and up to the present.
Sitting around a campfire eating traditional Australian food and joining in to sing great Aussie balads is so much fun, none of the friends I have taken has ever been dissappointed.
I highly recommend the experience of visiting Mary and Bill on Inglevale to anyone, and in fact I have already booked 2 trips later this year for friends with overseas visitors. I know that they well love it!
Norris farm is a truly unique experience, a step back into our pioneering days. Bill and Mary pack in so much for you to enjoy. I have never been so close to seeing a sheep shorn: I'll never forget the look of surprise on that sheeps face to be minus his winter woollies! Watch Bill rounding up the sheep, ploughing the field with the amazing draft horses, a trip in the horse drawn buggy, Mary's awaesome Aussie cooking, and then Bill playing guitar around the campfire. Truly you will sleep like a baby and then awake to the sounds of the Aussie bush.
I can't wait to go back again in September.
